LCHC and LCNC's pilot build - a straw bale office...

posted 28 Oct 2012, 11:12 by Leslie Barson   [ updated 23 Jun 2015, 01:08 by Deirdre Woods ]

We spent 25 days spread over July to October this year building a load bearing straw bale office for the co-operative in one member's garden. It was very hard work! We made lots of friends,


developed as a group

AND we have built a water tight building with our own hands very quickly!




Although it is not finished we have  learnt an enormous amount both about running projects and straw bale building. We will continue to have monthly volunteer days through the winter and finish the roof garden, ramp and final touchs in the spring.

Have a look at a short film of the build here:

Kathy has left the project team of LCNC for personal reasons. She won't be too far away and has already helped us with us with a reflection on the build.
We wish her so much love and luck!
